Vatha, Pitha (bile) and Kapha (Phlegm) are the main causes of diseases. According to Hindu Astrology, Planets govern Vatha, Pitha, and Kapha. During the Dasa period of a planet, if he is in conjunction with a malefic, extremely weak, or posited in or owner of evil house, he will give disease mainly of Vatha, or Pitha or Kapha as the case may be.

It must be clearly understood that diseases are given by planets mainly during their Dasa periods or sub-periods. Disease that we see in a horoscope may not perhaps materialize, if the native does not get concerned planet’s Dasa. If Dasa lord is strong and favourable sub-period of an evil planet, will not be able to produce his disease seriously in that Dasa. If it happens it can be cured.
